Lyness Back At Blackpool

31 August 2016

Goalkeeper Completes Move

Dean Lyness has returned to Blackpool on a permanent basis after penning a one-year deal, with the option of a further year.  

The goalkeeper, a free agent after leaving Burton Albion, made nine appearances for The Seasiders last season during two loan spells at Bloomfield Road. 

His arrival follows the departure of Kyle Letheren last week, with the 25-year-old now set to push Sam Slocombe for a place between the sticks. 

"We needed to strengthen in the goalkeeper department and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to add Dean to the squad," manager Gary Bowyer said. 

"He did very well on loan last season and he’s in a position where he knows the club and several players in the dressing room already. 

"I’ve said on numerous occasions that I want competition for places throughout the squad, and I’m sure the goalkeepers will bring out the best in each other."
